$ 165  

From the 1940’s to the 1960’s Mid Century Modern colors and designs were everywhere. Atomic, Boomerang, Ogee, Tiki... there are so many directions to go with these paintings.
This class will give you a little background of the era and we’ll go over some pattern verbiage and color combinations. Then, I’ll show you how to map out your canvas, create templates and assemble your own “Mid Century Modern meets Mixed Media” piece with paint and paper. These are my examples as seen in The World of Interiors magazine.

$15 payable to instuctor at beginning of class includes:

handout, templates, tape, Golden matte varnish, collage paper to share

Supplies Needed to bring for Class:
12X24 canvas
Your favorite acrylic set- I’m using Golden high flows and Liquitex matte soft body paints
Brushes, palette knife
Water container
Paper towels
Yard stick or 24” ruler
A few sheets of collage paper
Soft Gel
